A nice golden orange color with a nice light head. It is comprised mostly of sweet fruit and alcohol. Also there is a nice touch of spice to boot. I nice beer, indeed.

Let me start my beer rating
with the best beer Iíve ever
tasted. Having it on tap at Monkís
in Philly makes me want to
have an IV hook-up.
Iíve never tasted beer with
such a great aftertaste.
The fruity taste just blows me away!

Great Belgian Strong Ale. A clear beer with a clean finish. Not really yeasty but a bit of a lemon or sour finish at the end.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2003 Pours a clear golden color with a huge white head that lingers. It has a nice fruity aroma of malts, yeast, and spices. Medium bodied with high carbonation, the flavor is intensely malty, with a crisp, slightly dry finish and a lingering sweetness. This beer is very tasty and smooth, with the alcohol well hidden and lots of malts. Another 750 ml re-enforcement of my love for Belgian ales.

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2003 Awesome looking beer: bubbly, golden, thick & creamy head with nice lacing, and lot of particles. Aroma is thick with malt and a little pineapple-y. Very heavily carbonated. Flavor is initially sugary sweet, followed with an orange-peel and coriander flavor (and other spices I can't put my finger on). Finishes with a medium hop bite. Overall, I really enjoyed this brew. I didn't find it to be too alcoholic at all. A great beer to enjoy with desert.

Didnít know what to expect when I saw the Disneyesque white cartoon character bottle. Very complex ale - nice orangeish cloudy appearence, sweet grapefruit-like, citrusy aroma. Bit of a bitter aftertaste, but excellent mouthfeel - wakes up your tastebuds with its intially sweet, leading into bitter bliss.

The pour is a cloudy golden orange, the head is magnific, the lace resplendent upon the glass. Nose is malt, plummish, light hints of fusel alcohol. Front is sweet, the top is middling, the finish is bearably dry, modestly hopped, and benignly acidic. I see why many donít like it, as it is a bit scabrous, even ferine, but then I like the beers that íBite Backí Ranks #492 on my current 1000 beer master list.
